I am looking to have a "larger spun chamber"... (BIG)I expect to include many >= 8 apetures... Thinking that it would be good to have spherical "screw in" plates for those ports which I am not using... Want to maintain regularity... My ports will approximate the geometry of Farnsworth... - but I want to keep it "variable."

>In building these fusors, how critical is the geometry of the fusor chamber? Do departures from pure spherical geometry affect performance? Also, what are the largest dim spheres suitable for fusor research (currently in production) categorized by construction material? What is the price range?
